You picked a great place to start. Manual Aluminum Abarth with Recaros. Mind if I borrow your pictures? The car looks better in the sunlight and unlike Kissimee Florida we won't have any until June.

Thoughts, plans? See you soon here in the forum.
For now I'm just going to do some minor things like the DFVGB+ first until I feel the car out some more. Ideally, because this is my daily, the Eurocompulsion V4 Intake, Record Monza exhaust (still debating this one), and the Euro+Drive tune is as far as I'd go for power mods. That might take a bit as I want to save up to install Wilwoods when I do that though. Haven't decided if I want suspension upgrades, gotta feel out the suspension some more to see what I wanna do. So we'll see, got plenty of time to research and decide what I really want.

Sure, no problem. If you're looking for a particular angle or shot, feel free to ask and I'll try to get it to you as soon as possible :) .

Got a clear bra installed today, so here's some new pics! I like how it came out, you really have to look to see it. I ended up doing the full hood, front bumper, fenders, and mirrors.

Hi Lynk -

Did you get the Mopar clear bra for a DIY project? Or have a local shop custom fit it?

No, it's an XPEL clear bra, and the installers had the templates for it. They did the work for $1600 and it has like a 10 year warranty or something crazy like that.

The clear bra looks fantastic, which means I can't even see it. They did a great job.

In preparation for Phase 2, just installed the V4 Intake, Intercooler, and Catch Can. Just waiting for my tune from EC next week, and Phase 2 will be complete!

It came in the kit when you order the EuroCompulsion Catch Can.

Mine came with 90 degree bracket for attachment to the firewall instead of the flat one shown here to attach to the side. That might be what he's referring to.

Thats not the bracket I received. Did you order the catch can for the manual transmission? Cheers

Yea, I bought the manual transmission kit. Is there something blocking the way on automatics that they'd send out different brackets?

Ran a test and tune with the new mods in the 1/4 mile! This is EC's Phase 2, which is Phase 2 tune, V4 intake, Intercooler, and catch can. Stock everything else, including tires. Launch control set at 4000. This is my best run of the day. This is also my first time drag racing with the car.

14.524 @ 95.93 mph. Probably cold have gotten to the 14.4 range, but had other prior engagements, so had to cut it short early. I'm car #16.
